    For a vampire killer like Jane, having Leo Pellisier as a boss took some getting used to. But now, someone is out to take his place as Master Vampire of the city of New Orleans, and is not afraid to go through Jane to do it. After an attack that’s tantamount to a war declaration, Leo knows his rival is both powerful and vicious, but Leo’s not about to run scared. After all, he has Jane. But then, a plague strikes, one that takes down vampires and makes their masters easy prey.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Death's Rival the most enjoyable?

    I love the Narrator's accent and ability to sweep the listener along. She is pitch and expression perfect. She reads in exactly the way I feel I would read, so it doesn't ever feel as if I want her to slow down or hurry up.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jane is my favourite character, she is very well rounded as a person, extremely capable but not over confident. it has also been possible to watch her grow as a person throughout the series.


    What does Khristine Hvam bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Christine definitely brings the Southern character of the books to life, which will be clear to all listeners/readers now instead of just those who are already familiar with the american south.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Enjoy the ride!

    Story

    The story continues to keep you guessing, laughing and sighing as Molly refuses to compromise her values, even when it frustrates Daniel and her friends. But the world feels like a better place every time. Rhys Bowen is truly a master craftsman. 💞

    Irish immigrant and private detective Molly Murphy is thrilled to have a ticket to see world-famous illusionist Harry Houdini. But before he can even take the stage, the opening act goes horribly wrong—and the sensational Signor Scarpelli’s lovely assistant is sawed in half. In the aftermath, Scarpelli accuses Houdini of tampering with his equipment. Who else but the so-called Handcuff King could have got a hold of his trunk of tricks, which he keeps under lock and key?

    Story

    The whole series to date has been riveting. Each character carefully crafted and evolving. Each story unpredictable and unexpected in its resolution. The social issues of the era are explored with subtle and poignant skill that never detracts from the excitement of the story, but adds to the texture of each moment. Molly and Daniel are a true but never cliched romance. The narrator must never be changed! She is absolutely perfect. Well worth every penny and every minute spent listening.
